WHAT IS HEART FAILURE?

Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen. It is a complex, long-term disease, which can be affected by other health conditions or worsen over time.

Diagnoses typically treated in our program are:

  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • Coronary stent placement or balloon angioplasty
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Heart valve replacement or repair
  • Heart failure
  • Heart transplant
  • Angina
  • Other cardiac diagnoses

Each patient's condition is unique and requires a reliable team that can tailor the plan of care to match the patient's specific needs.

The Queen's Advanced Heart Failure Clinic collaborates with other Queen's specialists such as internal medicine, cardiac rehabilitation, home health, social work, palliative care, and nutrition services, to ensure our patients' needs are met.
